Grown Women’s Dance Collective, helmed by Tonya Marie Amos, creates dance performances that celebrate culture and history. Before the pandemic, they were asked to present a piece at a Homelessness prevention conference. When covid made the planned performance impossible, we were asked to help re-imagine the show for an online audience. CB Smith-Dahl co-directed this creative piece with Tonya Marie Amos, both women helping the dancers to film themselves in creative ways. The choreography was brought together with boxes – which was a new technique when the video was completed.

Video can also be viewed on the Grown Women’s Dance Collective Vimeo channel.
